A pleasant period piece
on September 16, 2011
This was a pleasant enough 1920s period piece. I found the writing a bit uneven in places and some plot transitions were not very smooths. This book seems like it was shortened from a longer version to me; I feel like some essential details were left out.
EDITED TO ADD: Ah, I now see that there was a book telling the story of Grace's brother, Jack, and his wife, Alice, with whom Grace went to live. I would guess that would supply some of the details I felt were missing.
